Through the summer holidays there are tours wed pm and Thursday am to see the architecture from the inside. Lovely volunteers and art, silverware and a chance for a sneaky peek in the lord mayors rooms, the council chambers and committee rooms. Which could be dull but the volunteers bring it to life.

I visited this city for business. At the end of my business trip, I was lucky because the Lord Mayor of Bradford, Khadim Hussain, escorted to see the city hall. You will see the history of Bradford from the different perspective if yo happen to visit the place. It is the history which is told from the people who gave... More

This is a magnificent building, standing majestically in the middle of Bradford City Centre. It is a pleasure to see this building.

Take the time on your visit to the Natioal Media Museum to step outside and see this and the Alhambra Theater, both less than a... More
